The new Ferrari SP275 rw competizione is a One-Off Classic

An F12 with some iconic flair. The Ferrari F12Berlinetta and F12tdf are the modern-day V-12 icons of high-performance motoring.

Ferrari F12 Successor Spotted Testing In Maranello

The new Ferrari F12berlinetta has been caught on video near Ferrari’s factory in Maranello and although the reveal is around four months away (Geneva Motor Show), it looks like the model will be facelift and not an all-new car.

It will apparently be called the F12 M and will get an uprated version of the V12 from the F12 but with an output close to that of the F12tdf (769 hp). The power hike could be joined by Ferrari’s ‘virtual short wheelbase’ active rear steering system, borrowed from the F12tdf. Inside we may see the dual-screen infotainment system that the new …Read entire story
